Has anyone tried the TRX over door exercising thingymabob. Not sure of the correct names, but it's some kind of suspension training. Have been looking into getting one that attaches to a door by way of a door anchor and just wondered if anyone has one?

We have one. It's pretty good. I don't know if dh got another bit for ours too or its standard but we take ours to the park sometimes and attach it to the goalposts or climbing frame.

Thanks, RJnomore1, it does look rather useful. Is it helpful for press ups? That's something I struggle with and would be using it for that (as well as lots of other stuff too!)

Define helpful! It does offer variety as to how you can do them but tbh I find them harder - it's either feet in stirrups or hands on handles and both ways seem harder.

Start on your knees with press ups - have you done that? Keep your bum and body straight though

We have one. I think they all come with the door attachment as standard.

It's great I can thoroughly recommend it. We have a cheapo one from Amazon rather than the branded one and it is indistinguishable from my PT's branded one.

We have a TRX (kids bought it for DH for Father's Day (I wanted one so thought good idea wink)) but I bought the bracket that you fit to a wall as I didn't trust the over door thing. Love it for crunches and tricep work.

trixymalixy - can I ask which one you bought? I've been having a look on Amazon and am a bit bamboozled at the moment. I'd much rather get a cheaper one if possible as the TRX is a tad pricey.

Thanks, trixymalixy - that looks good, and has good reviews. May give it a go grin

It's worth a punt for £30.
